How often do you power down your smartphone, giving it a chance to reboot and refresh? According to a Reader’s Digest, article, written in consultation with “experts”, your smartphone has a hard and fast rule you should live by: once a week, shut it off, let it rest at least one minute, and then fire it back up. There are a number of good reasons for this, including: retaining memory, preventing crashes, making it run more smoothly, and prolonging battery life. How so? Restarting the phone clears open apps and memory leaks, and gets rid of anything draining your battery.

Being frugal is no longer taboo, even in the dating world. That’s the main finding of a survey, which found that the vast majority of Americans value thriftiness in a potential partner — even on the first few dates. In the poll by the couponing site Slickdeals, 92% of respondents said they considered frugality “attractive” in a partner, while another 79% percent didn’t mind their partner using a coupon on a date. Two-thirds of those surveyed said they’d feel turned off by a partner spending in a frivolous manner.


Everyone’s favorite purple dinosaur just grew up. Mattel has revealed that its upcoming “Barney” film will be geared more toward adults than children. Exec Kevin McKeon told the New Yorker that although the Barney film is “really a play for adults”, it won’t be R-rated, “but it’ll focus on some of the trials and tribulations of being 30-something, growing up with Barney — just the level of disenchantment within the generation.” McKeon also described it as an (age) 24-type” movie. No release date has been announced.

Stanley Tucci believes actors should be able to play people with different sexualities than their own. In a BBC interview, he was asked to weigh in on the debate surrounding straight actors playing gay actors, and Tucci responded, “Obviously, I believe that’s fine. I am always very flattered when gay men come up to me and talk about [my role in] “The Devil Wears Prada” or they talk about “Supernova” (where he played gay characters), and they say…‘You did it the right way, because often it’s not done the right way.” The Oscar winner went on to state that he believes actors “are supposed to play different people…That’s the whole point of it.”

A reporter discovered how CCTV cameras are fitted with AI that can recognize offenders who breach the rules of the road.

⇒ “Sorry I missed your call.”

⇒ “If there’s anything I can do, just let me know.”

⇒ “It was nice talking to you.”

⇒ “I don’t judge.”

⇒ “I don’t know where your really loud, annoying toy went, sweetie! How about you play with your coloring book instead?”

⇒ “I don’t care what others think of me.”

⇒ “I’ve read the terms and conditions.”

(To the dentist): “Yes, of course I floss every day.”

⇒ “Yeah, I’ll definitely have to watch that show you recommended, thanks!”

⇒ “‘I’m almost there.”
